Fractional laser resurfacing is the most advanced method of skin rejuvenation. It is utilized in the treatment of wrinkles, pigment changes (such as sun spots) and scars, while also having the ability to stimulate new collagen production. Over the past decade, this procedure has revolutionized the field of facial plastic surgery and the anti aging industry. The main advantages of fractional CO2 laser resurfacing are its effectiveness and gentle technology. Dr. Kevin Sadati utilizes his EXELO2 fractional CO2 laser resurfacing machine, to offer maximum results for a variety of patient skin tones while the machine’s patented cooling system allows for additional patient comfort throughout the procedure.
Though fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is a great tool in erasing the effects of time, it is also ideal for preventing premature aging as well. The average patient seeking improved tone and texture is typically in his/her 40s or 50s, but those targeting acne scars, uneven pigmentation or premature sun damage tend to be in their 20s and 30s.
Fractional CO2laser resurfacing works by creating microscopic wounds to stimulate skin regeneration and allowing a new layer of skin to be revealed. With the results of this skin rejuvenation comes a new stimulation of collagen. This takes place deep in the layers of the skin thanks to mild heat produced by the laser’s warmth. Our Laser device is equipped with a sophisticated cooling system that keep the superficial skin cool and comfortable. This combination of actions helps the collagen to dramatically improve and also the appearance of skin’s texture and elasticity, helping to provide long lasting results. The procedure is performed with topical anesthesia and twilight sedation.
Orange County board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Kevin Sadati, recommends fractional CO2 laser resurfacing for those looking to combat the first signs of aging, and prevent the affects of further damage. Laser procedures offer excellent results, with minimal downtime. Recovery will include redness of the skin, sensitivity and possible swelling, but a typical patient is fully recovered within 7-10 days.
Following your treatment it is imperative to follow the prescribing doctor’s skincare regimen for proper healing and in order to preserve your results and your investment. Often broad spectrum sunscreen and a medical grade moisturizer applied several times throughout the day are key to optimizing the results of the procedure. Dr. Sadati recommends avoiding sunbathing and prolonged exposure to the sun for at least 6 months post laser resurfacing.
